Voting Support Now Available Via Call or Text in Six Languages
Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia announced that its Voter Protection Hotline is expanding to include texting, a brand-new feature for this election cycle. Georgians will now be able to call OR text the hotline at 888-730-5816 at any time for voting assistance and information.
The hotline is also now fully operational in six languages: English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, Hindi, and Vietnamese. Hotline staff and volunteers are equipped to answer questions in all six languages – via either call or text – related to voting deadlines, absentee voting, early voting in person, election day voting, and more.
“Meeting voters where they’re at is an essential part of voter protection, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with the launch of the Voter Protection Hotline’s texting feature,” said Chrystian Woods, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Party of Georgia’s Coordinated Campaign. “With texting and in-language capacity, Georgia Democrats’ Voter Protection Hotline is now able to assist more voters than ever, thanks to dedicated volunteers working around the clock to ensure that every eligible Georgia voter has the resources and information they need to exercise their right to vote.”
This cycle, Georgia Democrats’ Voter Protection Team has so far trained more than 500 hotline volunteers who are equipped to assist voters. Georgia Democrats’ Voter Protection Program was the first of its kind in the country, having been a permanent fixture of the party since 2017. The hotline answered more than 130,000 voter calls during the last election cycle alone.
Georgia voters can reach the hotline by calling or texting 888-730-5816.
